Safari Activities
Fill your days with the thrill of intimate wildlife encounters and authentic experiences, and your evenings with surprise moments and unforgettable dinners.

Alongside morning and afternoon game drives, included in every stay is the opportunity to experience a walking safari ( either to view big game, or to enjoy the subtle, unseen wonders of the bush), a fishing safari, or a night drive.

Our highly-trained rangers and trackers will do their utmost to delight with a choice of the following wildlife experiences:

Twice daily game drives

Explore the reserve on early morning and late afternoon game drives in an open 4×4 safari vehicle. An armed ranger and tracker team will share their extensive knowledge as you track the Big Five and a variety of wildlife. Morning drives begin as dawn breaks over the Great Fish River as the predators finish their nocturnal hunts, whilst in the late afternoon, wildlife can be spotted coming down to the river to drink.

Walking safaris

There’s nothing quite like experiencing the bush on foot with armed ranger and tracker team by your side. Set out to look for big game (white rhino, black rhino, elephant and buffalo) for the ultimate thrill, or alternatively, immerse yourself in the dense euphorbia and enjoy the fascinating environments up close, with no engine to distract you. Walks usually last from 3 to 4 hours and depart in the cooler early mornings.

Included in your stay


Kwandwe offers a variety of catch-and-release fishing options. Fish for bass in the still waters of Galpin Dam or target yellowfish and catfish in the pools and eddies of the Great Fish River. A fun activity for children – as well as the young at heart – fishing expeditions can be tailored to suit your timings and interests.
